    Hi
    More frequent monitoring is the most important also maintaining oil traps and using a sheet of chux cloth on top of frames in super keeping the area around your beehive clean no food scraps no mud but you can never keep your hive beetle free
    Cheers

    Chux is what Aussies call chickens. Maybe he means feed sacks.
